The pizza and pasta here are amazing, served by a friendly and courteous staff. Even better than this they put towards a charity that my partner mentioned about in general conversation with the waiter...unbelievable from them. I can’t recommend this place highly enough.

Fantastic restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff and how efficient they were. Da Vinci's is a nice quaint restaurant with fab live music. Food was delicious and would definitely recommend a friend.

Booked Da Vinci’s for xmas Party. Ambience was lovely, drinks a plenty... however food was hideous. Watery and very oily. However tiramisu was superb! Might try restaurant again with just family and perhaps not a pre made menu.
